Seafair Log Boom Presented by Bud Zero

Every year, Seafair hosts the largest floating party in Washington State on the legendary Seafair Log Boom during Seafair Weekend Festival. Boaters tie up to anchored logs along the racecourse between the flight box, providing them with the best views of hydroplanes racing and jets flying overhead. Experiencing the air show and races from the beaches of Lake Washington is remarkable; you can only imagine what it would be like from the log boom.
